IT Dispute Resolution

With the ever-increasing role of IT in businesses and organisations, IT conflicts can have far-reaching consequences. It is our aim to find a swift resolution before matters escalate.  

By virtue of our knowledge of IT and our expertise in dispute resolution procedures, we strive to offer the most pragmatic solutions possible. For example, in any IT conflict, we can quickly identify the points in dispute, assess their legal relevance and present them to informal dispute resolution panels, arbitrators or the court. This can help to reduce the length of a dispute and find a resolution in the most efficient manner possible.

We act on a broad spectrum of areas including identifying risks in the pre-litigation stage, evidence gathering, procedures & negotiation, conduct of judicial proceedings before the courts and conduct of arbitration proceedings at a national or international level.

Our IT specialists work in close cooperation with our litigation specialists, this ensures we offer our clients the best combination of IT knowledge and long-standing dispute resolution experience.
